[applause] today as there was sworn in as your governor, i pledge to follow the constitutions of new hampshire in the united states. now i will make one more promise. i will work as hard as i can to honor your trust. i will strive to do so in the
7:05 pm
tradition that has guided us throughout our history. the tradition of openness, bipartisanship and collective problem-solving. [applause] no one has exemplified that tradition more than the person i am succeeding. [applause] someone i want to thank on behalf of other citizen for his four terms in the corner office. thank you, governor john lynch. [applause]
7:06 pm
[applause] [applause] >> i thought this obvious that we could shape our own way forward, harnessing the promise of our great citizen democracy to preserve and in our state special qualities. i know that together we can build a stronger, more innovative new hampshire, a new hampshire were all of our citizens are included in our shared six has been prosperity.
7:07 pm
[applause] to our very core, we value freedom, independence, hard work, fiscal responsibility, family and community. we live these values in our personal lives and in our workplace is in every city sin, of circus and should have the opportunity to live them, to, to what a good job, work hard, raised a family and share in the high quality of life we enjoy in new hampshire. when they do, they become empowered and our state grows stronger. [applause]
7:08 pm
our ability to accomplish this goal lies in our willingness to innovate, not only to develop innovative new products and services, but to innovate in other areas as well. in the operation of our traditional industries, in the way we educate our citizens, and the way we deliver government's essential services and in providing the tools that support growing businesses and create good middle-class jobs. [applause] new hampshire has many distinctions we can be proud of. we have the lowest poverty rate and lowest teen birth rates in the nation.
7:09 pm
we are consistently rated as one of the safest states and one of the best places in the country to raise children. [applause] we are uniquely suited to seize the promise and opportunity and innovation presents. but adapting to the demands of an innovation economy presents immediate challenges, too. our population is aging, yet we pursue policies that are driving our young people out of the state. we have the fourth highest in-state tuition for public universities in the country and to many of our talented students pursue a college education all swear. when these new hampshire native sleeve to complete school, they often choose not to return,
7:10 pm
depriving our economy of talented people with the energy and skills needed to drive innovation. we need to renew our tradition of attracting new citizens to our state and we need to help our young people stay here, raised their own families here and remain part of the future of new hampshire. [applause] cutting state support for public education and house, while lowering the tobacco tax two years ago was shortsighted. [applause]
7:11 pm
it hurt our young people and if not quickly address, one pair of future economic prosperity. we must begin to reverse course. in exchange, the university system working with us needs to increase the number of new hampshire students admitted to her state colleges and universities and freeze in-state tuition. [applause] we must also recognize that not every student chooses the same path and that our community college system has developed innovative, nimble and
7:12 pm
cutting-edge programs to educate our citizens. we must continue to support their efforts, to build the strong workforce that our citizens name. [applause] i have always believed strongly in the power and value of education. my parents are educators and i was fortunate that they worked to make sure that my sister, brother and i received the best education possible. mom and dad created a home and which the value of learning, the obligations of citizenship and vigorous but respectful debate were emphasized. our home was always warm and rarely dole. it is difficult for me to express how grateful i am to my parents and family.
7:13 pm
i am so glad that my mother, peggy, my sister, franny and my brother frank are here with us today. [applause] [applause] given the importance of education in my life, it is probably not an accident that i choose to marry. i am so proud of the work my husband, tom, does this principle of the academy and i am so grateful for the support he has given me. tom, you will bring insight, humor and skill to the role of first gentleman. thank you. [cheers and applause]
7:14 pm
[applause] i am also a very proud mother. my two children, ben and meg have inspired me, grounded me and supported me. i wouldn't be here without you. [applause] [applause] and i can't talk about my family without acknowledging how much we've been help in enriched by
7:15 pm
the team of caregivers who have provided superb care and support to bad, allowing him to receive a full education and participate in his community. you have all become an integral part of our family and give proof to the idea that when we care for each other, we all get stronger. thank you. [applause] [applause] i want the same for all of new hampshire sound people as they want for my own children. the opportunity to learn, to grow into lead. recently i had the privilege of visiting gross inc. in nashua,
7:16 pm
which helps each import my skills to growth in young women. dozens of energetic gross, ranging from wrigley and five and six euros two collected teenagers had waited patiently for us to arrive. they had researched the questions they want to ask them their knowledge was impressive. but it wasn't related topics that were important. they were being encouraged to imagine and realized it they could use heaters, to, that they could be anything they want it to be. in order for their gross i met a girl's inc. and all of our young people to realize their dreams, we must ensure that each step along the way, their education is providing them with the skills, knowledge and innovative thinking needed in a 21st century economy. [applause]
7:17 pm
we must work with teachers, local schools, higher education and the business community to ensure a robust and rigorous education for all of our students, including in the stem fields of science, technology, engineering and math. [applause] new hampshire's public colleges and universities have set an ambitious goal of doubling the number of stem students that graduate by 2025. we should embrace that goal and make achieving a state priority. [applause] businesses are ready and willing to hire people with these skills.
7:18 pm
our task is to make sure new hampshire's workforce is ready to fill these jobs. [applause] we have other opportunities and challenges as well. to compete in the 21st century, our businesses must find new markets for their innovative goods and services. 95% of the world's consumers live outside of the united states. i want new hampshire to be a leader and ask for his and the next two years, worked to help business and sell their products around the globe. [applause] to encourage innovation, we should also encourage the creation of new technologies here in new hampshire by doubling the research and development tax credit.
7:19 pm
[applause] we want entrepreneurs have innovative ideas to come to new hampshire and we want those who start businesses here to stay here and grow here. that means continuing to build strategic partnerships between our colleges and universities and our ranchers and entrepreneurs. take the example of third hikes enforcement. bob garner, founder and ceo had the idea of use and low using low-cost energy-efficient components to build simple heating and cooling devices for homes and commercial buildings. rob told me that the idea came to him when he was sitting with his wife on a rooftop deck that was too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer. he thought, there has to be a way to fix this.
7:20 pm
he did in the support and guidance from the great launching pad, a business incubator at unh, bob has developed his idea into a successful and growing business right here in new hampshire. [applause] to support these businesses, we must recognize that there are some tasks that can only be accomplished in partnership with government. chief among those are ensuring access to education for all, protecting public safety and building and maintaining the infrastructure that businesses and citizens need. [applause] we must recognize that businesses from established industries such as manufacturing
7:21 pm
and tourism, to the industries of the future cannot innovate and grow without the modern roads, bridges, broad via a reliable and clean power that they require. [applause] to address our challenges and seize the opportunity of innovation, we must summon our best traditions of cooperation and problem solving. the people of our state collaborate and make things work all the time. and there are like to do leaders must be able to do the same. [applause] the people of new hampshire have made it clear that they want to restore balance, that they want us to work together. let us promise ourselves today
7:22 pm
that we will meet our challenges by focusing on common sense solutions form of collaboration, that we will together and the area of pasty reactive government. [cheers and applause] [applause] [applause] i understand the work of the house and the senate. others honored to be one of you. what you do matters and affects the lives of real people.
7:23 pm
to the best of my abilities, i will work with you and fostering open dialogue. in return, i urge members of both parties to share your ideas and concerns with me. my door will be open and together we can find a way to solve problems and make new hampshire a better place. [applause] among the most challenging tasks ahead is the need to foster innovative economic growth while continuing to balance the state budget. what we are seeing signs of recovery and growth, we still face fiscal uncertainty. we will need to be prudent as we develop our budget. and i am mindful that innovation
7:24 pm
is not confined to the private sector. we need to continue to find ways to innovate in state government so that we can honor a tradition of fiscal responsibility while serving the people of new hampshire effectively and efficiently. [applause] granted stators r. furcal and the history of our state government reflects that. to those of you who believe deeply in an income tax, i ask you to put that aside. i will veto any income or sales tax. [applause] and as we build our next budget, but we have much to address, we must acknowledge that we will not be able to do everything all
7:25 pm
at once. [applause] to those on the other side, i ask you to recognize that there are some things government must do, not only to help our most vulnerable citizens, but also to provide the platform for economic growth. [applause] needs to not go away simply because we don't fund them. [applause] and opportunities for innovation and growth can evaporate if we fail to make smart investments in a timely way.
7:26 pm
[applause] but if we work together, we can fund our priorities and balance the budget. [applause] as lawmakers, we must also recognize that our first and most important obligation is to protect the safety of new hampshire's families. i am so grateful to all those in our state who put their lives on the line to protect their communities, from the police officers, firefighters, emts and other first responders to corrections officers and security personnel, to state employees who maintain our state be in so many water. [applause]
7:27 pm
[applause] and we are grateful and proud of our veterans and members of the armed forces and the new hampshire national guard, so many of whom have been deployed repeatedly overseas in the last several years to protect our state and our nation while we have been a war. [applause]
7:28 pm
[applause] i know we have remained shaken by the tragic shooting at sandy hook elementary school. we can be comforted in the knowledge that our new ha be coe 3nowledge that our new hampshire we can be comforted in the knowledge that our new hampshire educators always bravely and professionally devoted to their students as the heroes in newtown were. we can be grateful that our first responders protect us by responding to grave an unknown dangers
7:29 pm
to make our schools and our towns safer and better. [applause] [applause] there is so much that i love about our stay. most mornings i walk in the woods so long the sound of pine needles clacking underfoot, and the muted alarm of mallards does my dog i walk by, the beauty and stillness of an ice covered screened bring clarity and cheer me as i begin my day.
7:30 pm
it reminds me that new hampshire is a place of unmatched natural beauty. we see it in the mountains that tower over the north country. and nobody except furcal our state and in the rocky shores and sandy beaches of the seacoast, we see it in every town and city. the awe-inspiring beauty of our natural resources is critical to our hunting, fishing and tourism industries. it attracts businesses and much bergner is to new hampshire and it is critical to the quality of our daily lives. [applause] but what i love most about new hampshire is the all hands on deck each dose of our people.
7:31 pm
whenever there is a challenge, our people are ready to help and pitch in. we are a state that combines independence and community and nowhere else. but that east coast requires that we fully include all people of talent and energy in the life of our state. inclusiveness is part of our history. new hampshire is at the forefront of the fight to save the union and end slavery. over the decades, we have welcomed waves of new citizens from the irish and french canadian immigrants at the 19th century to the immigrants from nepal, bhutan and all around the world who are we invigorating our state today. we are a model for including both men and women in our political process, exemplified today when a woman supreme court
7:32 pm
justice, chief justice, swore and a woman governor. [applause] [applause] we lead the effort to end discrimination against people who experience disabilities and we hope to bring them out of institutions and into the community. our recommitment now to that endeavor will strengthen our families, communities and economy. [applause]
7:33 pm
and nearly four years ago, we led the way without the force of court order towards marriage equality. [applause] [applause] last year, i was on a plane than the man next to me struck up a conversation and asked me about my work in public service, including marriage equality. it turns out he was a recruiter for one of the biggest employers in new hampshire and he said to me, marriage equality is one of the best recruitment tools i have. he said it wasn't because he was necessarily recruiting sub 10
7:34 pm
individuals, it was because the signal to everyone that kind of welcoming state we are. [applause] [applause] and as has been true throughout our history, every time we bring more people and from the margins, into the heart and soul of our democracy, we get stronger. [applause] we believe in freedom and the
7:35 pm
value of every person. it is our duty and our destiny to extend the same freedom we enjoy to all our people. [applause] the work of moving the special state forward cannot be done by officeholders alone. the doors of the state house are to all who want to engage, learn and contribute. it will take the ideas since. and energy of everyone, more so than any other place, new hampshire is it government by the people. [applause] addressing our challenges will
7:36 pm
not be easy. but we are granite stators and americans and we are supposed to do hard things. the question is whether we will live up to the grand vision that our founders had. remember the notion that we could operate as a true citizen democracy while also becoming an economic force in the world was at the time of revolutionary one. to some degree, our ability to prove our founders rate will depend on how we search our task. scripture refers to something called gladness of heart, and appreciation of the opportunity and freedom to do difficult things. in this time, in this place, let's choose to move our state forward with the optimism and pragmatism that is our hallmark. with gladness of heart, must
7:37 pm
choose to remember what a gift it is to be citizens of the granite state. thank you. [applause] [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> it's quite true that a people's history is the result of howard synthesizing the great work of other historians. what happened in the 1960s with the counterculture was that, you know, in a whole new generation of young historians have come up and they were in essence reevaluating all aspects of our past.
